Saline County

Book Description:

Early days in Saline County, IL, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales, factual data and personal biographies in this brand new spiral-bound booklet. The booklet is an excerpt from the hard-to-find 1887 book, History of Gallatin, Saline, Hamilton, Franklin and Williamson Counties, Illinois published by Goodspeed Publishing Co. of Chicago. A vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover. Gallatin, Saline, Franklin and Williamson Counties booklets are also available. The booklet, printed on 60# opaque paper, contains 86 pages. However, because we use a 2-up format on 8 1/2" x 11" paper, it includes over 160 pages from the original book. Among the many subjects discussed are: Physical Features; Settlement and Land Entries, Pioneer life, Organization of the County, List of Government Officials; Election Returns; Gen. John Logan (local congressman) and his supposedly inconsistent attitude toward sucession; Dr. John Mitchell and the debate on the propriety of bringing contraband Negroes into the county; Secret meetings of the Knights of the Golden Circle; Brief sketches of the 56th and 31st Illinois Infantry Regiments and Company E of the 29th Infantry with names of some members; the County Court; the Circuit Court; Court cases, many a result of the divided loyalties during the Civil War era; Prominent members of the Bar, with detailed sketches of Green B. Raum, Cressa K.. Davis, and James M. Gregg; Railroads; the Saline County Agricultureal Board; Harrisburg, the county seat; Businesses, Newspapers, lodges, town officials; Other towns -- Raleigh, Gallatia, Stone Fort, Eldorado, Morrillsville, Texas City, Texas Station, Rileyville, and others; Church History; Schools and other bits of history and trivia. Attention Genealogists: This booklet contains biographies of many county residents of yesteryear. Some are brief, but others include ancestors, previous residences, children, in-laws, affiliations, war records, and business activities, in the course of which they often shed light on the businesses, churches, professions and institutions, and on the events of the day.
